Anyone else depressed with all the salaries posted here? I thought the median household salary is somethin like 60K....lol. Of course people making 200K+ can FIRE early. I think only myself and one other person posted a salary under 100K...I guess we are both gonna have to work forever...........

DW and I barely top 100k combined. But we are just a couple years out of college and well on our way to FIRE.

to answer the poll:

Age: 26 (me), 29 (DW)
Income: barely over $100k
Total monthly expense: ~$3000
Net worth: ~$200,000
Stuff: House with small mortgage, 2 cars each 7 years old. 2 very young kids (8 mos. and 2 yrs), $275k investment portfolio. gobs of student loan debt at very low interest rates. No other "stuff" like vacation homes, jet skis or boats that require upkeep or suck $$ out of your wallet every month (besides the aforementioned children ).

I'm a civil engineer working at a private consulting firm. DW is an analyst at an investment bank. We live in a fairly low cost of living area/neighborhood.

Age 21 fresh out of college: 1966, salary 8100/yr., no student debt.
Age 49 was layed off: 1993, his and her salary combined 90k/yr, total net worth maybe 350k.

Long story - but the principles never change.

Low cost investing, diversify, time in the market and live below your means.

De Gaul, the Norwegian widow and mastering the fine art of being a really, really cheap bastard - at least until you have the first ten years of retirement under your belt.

I would be very interested in hearing more your experience with owning a laundromat. Is it a lot of work outside of your regular job? How much did you pay? PM me please if you feel like discussing.

OK, I'll bite. What does your wife's hotness have to do with cash?

Wow, judging by the picture, ex-O'Farrell Brother's dancers surely don't age very well...

Which is why the smart ones stash their money away while young hotness is still running high ! Looks decrease as net worth increases with age

I sent you a pm with my email address. It isn't too much work, but you really need to have a 'mechanical bent' and be able to fix stuff on your own, or the repair costs will kill you.

Mine is small, no employees except a cleaning lady that comes every night.

anyway I'll give you more detail privately.

Age - 28

Income - varies $55 - 85K in recent years and may top $100K this year

Profession - Consultant

Monthly expenses - $3-4000 depending on income

Net worth - about $350K but a big part of that is home equity resulting from lucky timing

Stuff - small car, single family home, high-end office equipment, books. I still use most of the furniture I got for free while in college.
